1,144 delegates by mitt romney. michael steel that devised this system, he was on your network a couple of weeks ago, and he said it would be very difficult for romney to get to 1,144. i spoke last week with someone with rick santorum's super pac, and they have a strategy in line, the santorum campaign, of infiltrating a lot of caucus states that have non-binding contests and trying to up the delegate count and take delegates away from mitt romney. the margin for error to get to 1,144 is still very slim, not a slam dunk by any means. >> you believe this is still a reasonable chance for newt gingrich to be a player here? >> yes, i think anybody, when i do the delegate math here, and i think the key date is april 24th. that is the key date. that is the pennsylvania and new york primaries are that day. i think rick santorum has to win his home state of pennsylvania and has to stop romney from getting all 95 out of new york f those two things happen, this race is going to go until at least june 5th because the calendar in may is very friendly towards rick santorum. so if we're talkin

:00 eastern tonight. here tonight, director howard feinman. and michael steele. both msnbc political analysts. and malika henderson. we've got brand new exit poll information out of illinois and the illinois primary voters. we asked which candidate would most likely beat barack obama? not surprisingly, nearly all of romney voters, 93%, said they thought their guy was most electable. but 28% of santorum voters said they saw him beating obama. howard, speak of sports, that means people would rather vote for the guy, at least in some locations, they deeply believe in rather than the guy in november. >> i think some of those people buy santorum's argument, that you have to solidify the base, and if the base isn't really excited, isn't ready to walk through walls, then that's a weak position to be in against the president. >> tweedledum and tweedledee argument. does it work? they're too close in the end to president and the moderate republican, former governor of massachusetts? in the end their too close to excite the public? >> i think there's some truth to that. i know that's a fear for

he's the leader of the republican party. remember a couple years ago michael steele, the head of the dnc when he criticized rush limbaugh had to go on limbaugh's show and apologize for daring to criticize him. rnc.

that kind of buffer. the way michael steele, the former rnc chairman, helped to set this up the last time and the rnc, they don't have as many buffers as the democrats did to prevent anything like that from happening, so there are lawyers in the republican party today looking up what happens if we get to the convention and nobody has 1,1 44. >> you're nodding, dana. >> well, i mean, there is a sense that republicans are being hoisted by their own patard here, and they deliberately tried to slug down the process. the primaries have proportional assignment of delegates that somebody couldn't just roll ahead with it all at once, and in a way this is a problem they very deliberately created, not expecting it right to turn out this way. that said, i think we in the media tend to look at possibilities and assign them rather more weight than they actually deserve, and i agree with joe that it's certainly possible that it will turn out this way, but history would indicate that that's not what's going to happen. >> dana milbank, joe, always good to see you. s thank you. >> thanks, credits. >>
